The 13 day week

In case, you didn't pick it up from the title of this post, I am exhausted. I am on Day 9 of my 13 day workweek, and I've only left work before 6 pm, 3 days in the last 9. :( The reason for my crazy hectic schedule: School festivals! I currently live and work in Japan and every year in September or October, schools around the country exhibit what they've done for friends and family. It means an insane amount of work for teachers and students and I spent most of my time at my chugakkou- Junior High- making a bilingual poster of the History and Geography of Barbados. Even on days I wasn't scheduled to be there (I work at 2 other schools).

Anyhow the JHS festival is over as well as one of the elementaries. But while the hardest part of the work is done, I won't get a day off til Sunday, November 1st :(

Welcome to My World

Hey there peoples,

My name is Claire and I'm a blog-aholic! lol!

This is my 5th blogspot. I've started blogspots for different facets of my life and every now and again I realise O want to say something and it doesn't quite fit on my existing blog(s), I make a new one. I stick to that new one for a month or 8, and then I run out of steam and never blog there again.

So I finally decided to do the smart thing. Write a blog that's just Claire. All the different facets of Claire. All million and one of them. Enjoy!
